Too many of us exist in an overstressed, near continuous state of “fight-or-flight,” our overactive sympathetic nervous systems negatively affecting our moods, sleep cycles, and muscular, cardiovascular, immune and digestive systems. In this series we will gain a practical understanding of the physiology of stress and learn highly effective yogic practices and innovative coping strategies that counteract stress and stimulate the “relaxation response.” We’ll learn visualization and somatic relaxation techniques; meditation and breathing practices; cognitive “thought-stopping” and reframing methods to unwind the mind; and much more. Come discover how to boost your health and wellbeing and embrace your birthright to be relaxed and centered, whatever the external world throws your way.
